Beaufort Books Rushes U.S. Release of The Jewel of Medina

With its UK release in suspended animation, The Jewel of Medina is being rushed to shelves in the United States by publisher Beaufort Books.

The UK publishing house Gibson Square was set on fire last weekend, allegedly in opposition to its previously expected October release of Jewel. Martin Rynja of Gibson Square is currently under police protection after the arrest of four suspects in connection with setting the fire.

Eric Kampmann, president of Beaufort Books, hopes that advancing the publication will “reduce or eliminate any chance of violence,” and that once people actually read the book, their focus will turn to the story and the author, Sherry Jones.

After having been pulled from shelves in Serbia in early September, The Jewel of Medina is once again available in Serbian bookstores and will be in U.S. bookstores on Monday, October 6, 2008.
